How to Get There
This review has been sometime coming so firstly, things may have changed since our review but I feel that we have to make it. I think that the review is worth making given that we have stayed before, this was our second review, and people tend to make review based on their first and normally only stay which of course means that the reviews are commonly high as it’s a snapshot as opposed to a ‘second viewing’ having stayed twice and you tend to pick things up after the ‘wow’ of the place.
Given we stayed so long ago, please excuse jumping around but wanted to point out the negatives and positives.
We stayed for 5 nights over Christmas 2018 and booking mostly in different rooms each night due to the rooms which were available to book at the time. We stayed in most rooms with the exception of the largest room which was booked during out stay.
Our most disappointment came from the UFO room which while unique is a disaster if you have bags as you need to lug these up the retractable stairs and the first visit we had they were only too helpful to help us with this, on the second visit however, much less so. And they clearly threw our bags down the stairs as they broke (and replaced!) one of our suitcases.
The room has many features but does feature too some water ingress shown in some photos I took and the furnishings are pretty tired too. There was no charger for the mobile phone in the room (how you contact reception) and also there were no batteries in the ‘bird sound’ book. (see photo)
Also, the mini fridge in the room is by the fire – not ideal if you’re expecting the fridges goods to be kept cold while the fire is on? (see photo)
The walls are scuffed from furniture being moved. (see photo)
The bird game (see photo) was missing pieces.
We tried many of the excursions offered by the hotel and each were wonderful. They are mostly managed by a third party company. They pick you up and drop you off We tried the dining ice (wonderful!) and huskies in the snow at night (great experience!). We also tried the northern lights photography session which again was great but we only saw the lights on a slow exposure camera.
The communal sauna has a shower but this did not drain during our stay. We complained but nothing was done (see photo).
Its worth a one off experience but we wont return.
I'd seen this place on Instagram and in various design magazines for years, so when I was planning a recent Scandinavia trip with my sister I decided to make a trip just to stay here. While this meant devoting a bit of time to traveling to/from northern Sweden it was so very worth it. The place is LOVELY--the thing of storybooks. We stayed in the cabin and I'd highly recommend it. Not only is it quite comfortable and well-lit, but it also has a SUPERB view from the windows and a roof deck to boot. Some of the other cabins may be more interesting/unique (like the mirror cube), but we had a great time walking around and photographing those without having to stay in them.
We also splurged on a late night sauna/hot tub, and 3-course dinner. The food was INCREDIBLE. We had reindeer for our main course and it was so tender and delicious. Drinking an ice cold beer in the jacuzzi in the middle of the forest all by ourselves was also quite special.
Because we came during summer, the midnight sun was on full display. At 2am the pink/orange glow of the sun all around us was a site to see. We really enjoyed sitting on our roof deck listening to the birds chirping and marveling at our magical surroundings.
The staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating, taking our bags to/from the room for us and making sure everything ran smoothly.
It may require a special trek, but it's so so so so worth it. This was a trip of a lifetime and one I'll cherish forever.
We stayed for one night in the Mirror Cube and it was like an illusion to enter it. The architecture is spectacular and it was an unique experience to softly be rocked to sleep in the canopy! We had a superp dinner made of local produce and the service was outstanding.
